Keynote Session with Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Join us for the official opening ceremony of the Hinman Dental Meeting! Doors and cash bar open at 5 p.m. with a musical prelude until 5:30 p.m. The Keynote Session introduces the Meeting’s Featured Clinicians and Keynote Speaker, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Dr. Gupta is the multiple Emmy® award-winning chief medical correspondent for CNN. Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon, plays an integral role in CNN’s reporting on health and medical news for all of CNN’s shows domestically and internationally, and contributes to CNN.com. His medical training and public health policy experience distinguish his reporting from war zones and natural disasters, as well as on a range of medical and scientific topics, including the recent Ebola outbreak, brain injury, disaster recovery, health care reform, fitness, military medicine and HIV/AIDS. Dr. Gupta is the host of Vital Signs for CNN International and Accent Health for Turner Private Networks.

Gupta’s passion for inspiring Americans to lead healthier, more active lives led him to launch “Fit Nation,” CNN’s multi-platform anti-obesity initiative. In 2009, “Fit Nation” followed the progress of Gupta and six CNN viewers as they inspired each other while training for a triathlon. The program is now in its seventh year.

In addition to his work for CNN, Gupta is a member of the staff and faculty at the Emory University School of Medicine. He is associate chief of neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital and regularly performs surgery at Emory University and Grady hospitals. He holds memberships in the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the Council on Foreign Relations. He serves as a diplomate of the American Board of Neurosurgery and is a certified medical investigator.

Gupta contributes to the CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes. He is the author of three New York Times best-selling books, Chasing Life (2007), Cheating Death (2009) and Monday Mornings (2012).

Gupta received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and a doctorate of medicine from the University of Michigan Medical School. Before joining CNN, Gupta completed neurosurgical fellowship at the Semmes Murphey Clinic and residency at the University of Michigan Medical Center.
